Haven Ports Yacht Club

Melges

We are now into our 5th year of Melges racing/sailing at the Club. The fleet continues to grow from strength to strength with 10 boats regularly seen on the water.

With owners ranging from their 20's into their 70's, the boats suit a range of ages and abilities.

For 2017 we will be running the traditional Spring and Autumn series together with two weekends of sea racing and the UK Nationals as part of the Felixstowe Regatta in July over 3 days. We are also planning Friday evening races starting at 19:00 and covering nine Fridays throughout the summer – see the club program for full details

Although a performance keel boat the Melges is an amazingly stable boat and easy to sail, so she is suitable for all levels of skill. Being a fleet of one design there is always somebody to race against, without the complications of handicaps.

The class is running a try a Melges day on 29th May 2017 in the Marina, so if you are interested why not come along and have a go!
